At first glance you say, another 80 acre property up north but, as soon as you pull int the driveway, you notice something different. Rolling terrain with towering pines, bright white birch, stately oaks, and then a spring fed pond. Then you see the home, cedar shakes and siding, a screen porch along the entire west side, a deck off the loft bedroom above the porch, and a patio below from the walkout basement all facing the pond. Upon entering the home there is a mud room and stairs to the basement. Around the corner the kitchen greets you with a cathedral ceiling, tongue and groove aspen woodwork harvested from the land. Beyond that you see oak hardwood floors and a pot belly stove in the wide open living area. The screen porch is right behing 3 huge sliding doors that allow great scenes from outside to be right there in front of you.
Once you have explored the main level with 2 bedrooms including the master with a bathroom and sliding door, you notice the winding stair case to the loft. You quickly race up the stairs to see what is up there and discover a huge area that can be used as a bedroom or a family room. Another sliding door takes you to the balcony over the porch. Your view includes fantastic sunsets, deer coming down for water from the pond and abundant wildlife. There is also a huge walk in closet or play room. The smell of bacon and coffee will make getting up a memorable experience.
The lower level awaits your ideas as it is wide open and has two more sliding doors that open to the patio below the porch. Time for a leisurely stroll around your new home. The trails wind throughout the hills, forest, wetlands and you take even more wildlife. There are a few tree stands for hunting or bird watching that are well marked. There is even a 5 acre pasture for Elk, which you could also use for cattle or horses. A large pole barn and 3 car garage are just the start of your storage area as there are several additonal out buildings scattered throughout the acreage.
Time for fishing or boating, Long Lake is just around the corner as is the Kettle River. The Willard Munger State Trail is only a mile away. Hinckley is around 20 miles to the south and Duluth is now less than an hour away. There are also several state parks in the area including Banning State Park with an old rock quarry that is very scenic.
